30 Aug – After losing custody of her children and having her ex-partner Zhang Heng making things worse for her career, it was revealed that Chinese actress Zheng Shuang is now facing an enormous fine for tax evasion.

As reported on Epoch Times, the actress, who was accused of signing yin and yang contracts - the term first made famous in 2018 when Fan Bingbing was punished for doing so - was ordered by the Shanghai Municipal Tax Service to pay fines for tax evasion of nearly 220 million yuan, and taxes of 72 million yuan.

It is noted that Zheng is also facing several lawsuits for her previous scandal, seeing that she has breached several contracts and caused losses to brands and producers alike when she was banned from appearing on television due to her surrogacy issue.

At the same time, her television dramas have also been removed from major video platforms, including her upcoming "A Chinese Ghost Story", that has been banned from airing by the National Radio and Television Administration (NRTA).

Zheng has not made any comments about the fine yet at the time of writing.

The actress' downfall sparked earlier this year, when it was revealed by her ex that she has abandoned her two children born through surrogacy in the US. It is noted that surrogacy is illegal in China. She was immediately dropped from various international and local brands, and later lost her custody battle against Zhang.
